ICASO is the international network for community-based AIDS organizations (CBOs) whose mandate is to promote and support the work of CBOs around the world in the prevention of AIDS and care and treatment for people living with HIV/AIDS (PHAs), with particular emphasis on strengthening the response in communities with fewer resources and within affected communities.
ICASO unites groups throughout the world who have been affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. ICASO’s recognition and respect for the human rights of all persons is central to an intelligent public health strategy to combat the AIDS epidemic.
The ICASO network is an interactive global focus point in the international HIV/AIDS world, gathering and disseminating information and analysis on key issues, coordinating the development of CBO/NGO positions on these issues, and working as partners with key international agencies to ensure that the concerns and interests of CBOs and NGOs around the world are articulated and represented at all levels.
